Focus On Thinking You’re Good Enough

I recently came across this article written by Madison Sonnier all about things to remember when you think you’re not good enough. I know I, as well as many others, often think that I’m not good enough in many situations.

This negative thinking pattern can have detrimental effects to your self-esteem and state of mind, and it is important to be healthy mentally. I think this article provides seven easy points that you can reflect on whenever you are feeling down about yourself.

In summary, the seven points are:

  1. The people you compare yourself to compare themselves to other people too.
  2. Your mind can be a very convincing liar.
  3. There is more right with you than wrong with you.
  4. You need love the most when you feel you deserve it the least.
  5. You have to fully accept and make peace with the “now” before you can reach and feel satisfied with the “later.”
  6. Focus on progress rather than perfection and on how far you’ve come rather than on how far you have left to go.
  7. You can’t hate your way into loving yourself
